Serum albumin

Name: Serum albumin
Description: A sterile non-pyrogenic suspension of microspheres of human serum albumin with perflutren (a highly fluorinated small molecule) for contrast enhancement during indicated ultrasound imaging procedures. Pharmacology: Regulates the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. It is used to increase the circulating plasma volume, thereby reducing hemoconcentration and blood viscosity. Also used as a transport protein that binds naturally occurring, therapeutic and toxic materials in circulation. Mechanism of action: Serum albumin acts as a high molecular weight, very soluble osmolyte Drug type: Approved. Biotech. Drug category: Serum substitutes
Synonym(s): Serum albumin precursor, Optison, Perflutren Protein-Type A Microspheres
Has role: Drug
Super-category: Molecular entity
